2016 Magill Estate Shiraz, Penfolds, South Australia

Magill Estate is situated right in the suburbs of Adelaide, and the 2016 is beautiful.Lovely density, with a saline character. Long and pure, and impressive depth. This is really refined, with elegance and finesse. The sophisticated side of Shiraz, with that dancing acidity continuing on the long and fine finish.

TASTING NOTES

The 2016 Shiraz Magill Estate aged in 100% new oak (70% French and 30% American), which has left its cedary, vanilla mark on the wine, but in a balanced, harmonious way. It's a full-bodied wine, with big berry fruit and lavish oak, yet those components are wonderfully judged, coming together in a fine, elegant wine that showcases the brand's home estate in the Adelaide suburbs. With only 15 cases for the United States, it will be tough to track down.
